MIPS Architecture and System/161 InfoThis page contains information on the simulated hardware environment we are using for the assignments.
MIPS R2000/R3000Harvard has a nice summary of the MIPS R2000/3000 at http://www.courses.fas.harvard.edu/~cs161/resources/mips.html (a local copy is here). Note that the local copy will be in sync with our assignment environment, please use it in preference to any external copy.
A detailed R3000 reference manual is available here. It covers more than you need to know. Be aware that some specific CPU details are not implemented in System/161. Use the rule that if it's not outlined in the above summary, then don't rely on it existing. However, still feel free to experiment.
System/161The System/161 page is at http://www.courses.fas.harvard.edu/~cs161/resources/sys161/index.html.
Our local copy is can be found from the menu on the left. Note that the local copy will be in sync with our assignment environment, please use it in preference to any external copy.
